Raceday Hospitality, Sponsorship & Advertising

 
 
 
 

Thirsk Racecourse is able to offer its clientele a wide choice of hospitality, sponsorship and advertising opportunities, which are both fun and great value. In addition to Corporate Hospitality and Sponsorship, Thirsk also offers a range of hospitality and sponsorship options aimed at private celebrations and entertaining.

RACEDAY HOSPITALITY

Our award winning caterers, CGC Event Caterers, are rightly proud of their reputation for quality and value, whether a simple buffet or top-notch fine dining cuisine. You can choose between several of our popular 'all-inclusive' food and drinks packages, which we have put together from previous experience, knowing what our clientele really enjoy, or of course you are equally welcome to specify your own detailed requirements, drawn from our extensive 'bespoke' menu selector.

'ALL INCLUSIVE' Packages:

Please note that all inclusive drinks packages are NOT available on a stand-alone basis.  They can be added to any all inclusive hospitality option, although that is up to the client and you may of course simply order whatever wines, etc, you would like by the bottle, or CGC Event Caterers will be delighted to arrange a cash bar in your box.

 

OR BUILD YOUR OWN 'BESPOKE' PACKAGE:

For those who prefer to build their own package, our Box Hire rates are here

You may of course also add an 'all inclusive' drinks package to your bespoke hospitality (see above) or simply order whatever wines, etc, you would like by the bottle, or CGC Event Caterers will be delighted to arrange a cash bar in your box.

 

LADIES' DAY LAWN MARQUEE:

We will also be offering our popular 'Ladies Day Lawn Marquee' package again, which is both great fun and superb value. 090917_LawnMarquee.pdf and details of our new exclusive Ladies' Day Chalets will follow shortly.

RACE SPONSORSHIP:

Sponsorship is a fantastic bolt-on to any hospitality occasion and really gives you and your guests a fun focus for the day, whilst promoting your brand, business or event too - see further details in the 'Sponsorship' section below.

RACE SPONSORSHIP

Many of Thirsk's hospitality clients enjoy enhancing their day, whilst promoting their business or celebration through race sponsorship. Race sponsorship is a highly cost-effective way to boost your company image, raise its profile and reach a large target audience to communicate your key business messages. 

You will achieve extensive exposure for your name and brand both on and off the racecourse through Racing UK TV broadcasts to homes, betting shops and pubs and clubs throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland as well as internationally; and through extensive online streaming (via online betting sites) and traditional Press and other media coverage. 

There are also lots of opportunities for you to brand the Racecourse on the raceday, including advertising hoardings and the racecard.

Sponsors are encouraged to visit the Parade Ring to choose ‘The Best Turned Out Horse’ before the race and then present a cash prize to the stable lad or lass looking after the chosen horse. Then, after the race, present a trophy to the winner in the Winner’s Enclosure, making the most of a great photo opportunity for posterity!

Thirsk's corporate sponsorship packages start at just £1,000 plus VAT.

Private individuals can name a race to mark or celebrate a special occasion. 

This offers the opportunity to judge ‘The Best Turned Out Horse’ and present a memento to the winning owner. The minimum sponsorship amount is £500.

We also have a new Celebration Package for people who are wanting to celebrate a special occasion at Thirsk Racecourse. Please click here for more information.

SITE BRANDING & ADVERTISING

There are several advertising options and location sites to choose from including the Parade Ring, trackside (directly opposite the grandstands) and on The Stables Bend entering the back straight.  These locations have been selected to maximise our advertisers exposure to both the TV audiences and the raceday crowd.
